Must admit although I like XT, I get mixed results at times on thin wall structures, same part in ColorFabb PLA is fine, so will be nice to try the nGen, I can see a set of samples being ordered as a Xmas present when they are available. I'm still doing my tests of various filaments and I'm getting a big box of cylinder flow test samples, and a great army of robots.

    I got only limited time to do a test but I did print a tree frog and the overhang on the belly have come out perfect with 100% fans. That being said I think 100% is too strong cause I had to raise temp to 235°C and can clearly see a difference in color from 230 to 235 when I did that. I guess fans at 50% and printing at 225°C would give a similar result.

    I notice a good difference in retraction between 230 and 235 so I suspect that the retraction will be much easier to deal with around 225.

    Still no burn marks :D

    Hope to get another run around 220-225.

    I've seen it last week during a Colorfabb factory tour, the real flexible. asked when It would be available, answer; "soon, but don't expect it within a month ...."
